OPI Don’t Toy With Me

31 Aug

Hello Darlings.

It has been around a month since my last post. The horror! So I thought I’d welcome you all back with a Nail of the Day post, namely, OPI Don’t Toy With Me.

At first you notice the bold red, but as you stare in to it for a little while longer you notice the magenta shimmer and sparkle. I am not a red girl, but this is truly gorgeous. Hailing from the Holiday in Toyland Collection, Don’t Toy With Me is my go to Christmas polish, but is suitable for all occassions. Application is perfect and the ProWide Brush distributes the glitter beautifully.

Have a lovely day darlings.


Sunday is my Funday

1 Aug

I like the Bangles. There’s something about Susanna Hoff’s voice that always reminds me of Summer which then reminds me of summer fashion which then reminds me of Summer activities. Even though I don’t particularly like Summer, I still like the Bangles and my connotations.

Does anyone else prefer Winter? I do darlings. My skin is much clearer, my hair sits just right (unlike dear Miss Hoff’s in the above photo) and I can indulge in my blazer obsession. My Asos blazer came a few days ago, it is far better than expected. Must get it dry cleaned though as it’s dreadfully creased.

This is something that wouldn’t get creased. A disco ball shirt arrangement modelled by my favourite russian, Sasha P.

Have a good week darlings.

Nail of the Day – China Glaze – For Audrey

27 Jul

So my darlings here is my first NoTD post. I decided For Audrey tickled my fancy and as you can see below, it is a beautiful Tiffany blue. Definitely in my top 5 polishes of all time. I love CG too as the formulas are great to work with and always dry in a snappy manner. I think the word snappy needs to be used more often…

So darlings, what’s your favourite polish?

Playlist of the Week.

26 Jul

I am religious when it comes to organising my iTunes.

Everything is in alphabetical order according to artist name and under no circumstances may an artist field be left blank. Or worse. Track x syndrome. Who in their right mind would leave a song title incorrect? I think I might have a mild case of OCD.

Now since I know I tempted you with the title I had better reveal what indeed my playlist of the week is. Well darlings, it is Seductive Saxophone Solos. Gone are the days when Careless Whisper owned the charts, but the influence lives on. Here are my top picks if you wish to start your own.

01. The Logical Song – Super Tramp. If you are too young to remember the original and only vaguely recollect a version by someone or something called ‘Scooter’ I suggest you head to youtube and view. This and really the whole Breakfast in America album is superior to any Sax solo you’ve heard before
02. Excitable Boy – Warren Zevon. Ah Zevon. Your mellow lyrics and gentle melodies get me everytime. Consider this solo for BBQs by the beach.
03. Modern Love – David Bowie. I heart Bowie. It’s that simple. Anything he sings already gets 10/10 in my book and the addition of the Sax in Modern Love pushes it over to the 10.5/10 catagory.

There you go darlings, now go forth and explore your sympathies to the saxophone.

Fabulous Fridays

23 Jul

This is my first post relating to fabulousity that is only discovered on fridays.

First on my fabulous list is http://www.asos.com. Recent purchase can be found in the image below. Although a polyester blend which always makes my heart wince just that little bit, it was a bargain at 15 pounds.

Second item of fabulousness is OPI Banana Bandana. Creamy like a banana milkshake which coincidentally I despise and believe the nail polish would taste better. It is seen here with China Glaze Refresh-Mint. Mmm mint.

Thirdly and finally I present to you Wheels On Fire by Julie Driscoll. Never a film clip has been seen with so many spinning whirly gigs on pedestals.

Hello World

22 Jul

Hello World and welcome to the glorious blog of Priscilla Voila. Also known as me!

Together we shall embark on a sensory experience of magnificence – all from the comfort of your laptop screen.

I plan to dust your mind with things like television reviews, music summaries, food analysis, fashion faux pas and anything that tickles my fancy. You may be certain that whatever appears in my little corner of the cyberverse will ooze love, wit and interest.

Love to you all darlings.
